    CANTON, Ga. (AP) — A Cherokee County man found a hidden treasure in a painting he bought at an auction: four pounds of marijuana.

    Gordon Clement, 80, discovered the pot stashed inside of the painting, which he bought at a post office auction about five years ago. He found the drugs last weekend when he tried to sell the artwork at another auction.

    Clement planned to ask $25 for the piece. Police said the marijuana was worth about $4,800.

    Alarmed, he called his lawyer and turned the painting over to authorities.
